For students in grade 7 who completed the FSAs in October, they have been evaluated and will be returned to them to bring home. Please expect them over the next couple of days, at the latest by Friday. Families should receive an orange assessment booklet and a printed off assessment rubric for feedback.

Thank you!


Good Day,

I hope this message finds you well.

We are currently experiencing significant shipping/delivery delays due to the flooding and travel restrictions across the province.

If you are waiting for proofs, you may want to view  and/or order their photos, they can view/order by  doing the following: Please have them log into www.mylifetouch.ca and use their child’s student number for access.

If you need to check on their order please have them call Customer Care at 1 888 676 1647 or use the chat feature on the mylifetouch.ca website.

We are hopeful that travel and delivery services will return to normal soon.

Also, I will be away from my phone and email the week of December 13-17, so replies (from myself, or other team members) may be a little slower than normal.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.


Good Afternoon,

There has been an upward flux of the number of masks that need to be handed out to students lately. Please try to ensure that students arrive at school with a mask.

We cannot keep up with the demand at this point.

Thank You

Good morning,

We received the following notice from the District of Sooke:

Please be advised Charters Road in Sooke will be single lane alternating traffic at the Throup Stream on Monday next week, likely (at least) until Thursday. We will have more information, after the rainfall event passes.

Northbound vehicles must yield to oncoming, southbound, traffic.

Following the storm event, traffic control will be re-evaluated.


Lost and found items are building up!

Students have been asked over the last couple of weeks to visit the lost and found items which have been laid out for them to look at in the hallway by the gym. Mrs. Abell has now taken these items home and washed them, in preparation to take them to charity. If you know that your child has misplaced an item (most likely a hoodie or jacket), please contact Mrs. Abell to describe the lost item and to whom it belongs – she will attempt to return as many items as possible. The unclaimed items, however, will be taken to charity after Monday, December 6.


Thank You
